Emirates anticipates peak travel period at start of 2021


Our Correspondent


Travel is expected to reach another peak at the end of this week for Emirates, as the airline expects yet another busy period. A high volume of travellers will be making their way to Emirates’ dedicated Terminal 3 facilities on 2nd and 3rd January 2021, to depart Dubai, in addition to a rush of inbound traffic into the city. Across both days, over 70,000 passengers will be departing and arriving on Emirates flights.
During the winter season, Dubai remains a popular destination for Pakistani families who visit the vibrant, cosmopolitan city to enjoy an eclectic mix of offerings including impressive beaches, fun-filled theme parks, world-class shopping, and a wide range of restaurants. Dubai-based Pakistani residents too travel back to Pakistan to visit friends and family or to enjoy the festivities of the ongoing winter wedding season.
Pakistani customers travelling to Dubai and beyond are reminded to check the latest travel requirements to their booked destination, and to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight departure. Dubai-based Pakistani passengers are encouraged to build in extra time in their journey to avoid delays with expected traffic congestion coming into Terminal 3.
Passengers arriving back to Dubai should check the specific entry testing requirements from the country they are coming from.
Passengers physically checking in at the airport are requested to check in no later than 3 hours prior to departure, regardless of class of travel. Customers who present themselves less than 60 minutes prior to their scheduled flight departure will not be accepted for travel.
